A spot illustration from the book ~VonBrrr
and I created. The skyship's carpenter repairs damage taken in battle.
Due to time constraints this had to be rushed, although the upside of this is that I learned how to create certain effects quickly. It's also the first project in which I put to use the many things learned from reading James Gurney's fantastic books Colour & Light
and Imaginative Realism.
Since the pages were to use image textures I decided to have hard-edged images to avoid white bleeding into paper texture, as I thought the latter would look silly. Not sure if I made the right call there....
